Food and Drug Administration, HHS.


Proposed rule; correction.


The Food and Drug Administration is correcting a proposed rule that appeared in the Federal Register of August 16, 2007 (72 FR 45993). That document proposed to amend the biologics regulations by removing, revising, or updating specific regulations applicable to blood, blood components, and Source Plasma to be more consistent with current practices in the blood industry and to remove unnecessary or outdated requirements. The proposal published as a companion document to the direct final rule that published in the same issue of the Federal Register (August 16, 2007, 72 FR 45883). Both documents published with a typographical error in the codified section. This document corrects the error in the proposed rule. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register we are correcting the error in the direct final rule.
